Emilia Clarke is unexpectedly the silliest and most endearing actress in all the land. You would think, after embodying a very serious young woman who rules all of Meereen (and probably one day the Seven Kingdoms), Clarke would also be a serious young woman IRL. But not so much. She is SO SILLY. I mean. Look at her Instagram — if it doesn’t make you giggle then I DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL.

Clarke just recently revealed to Variety that when it came to her audition, she didn’t take things SO very seriously. I mean, yes she proved to them she would make the perfect Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons and Breaker of Chains, but she also let Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff know she can have FUN, too.

After she was finished auditioning, Benioff asked her if she had anything else — and jokingly said she could even dance if she wanted. Well, she took him up on it, because when in Rome Westeros. The dance she performed was the Funky Chicken because that was the only dance routine she had up her sleeve.

“I’d might as well have brought in, like, a little apple or something. Teacher’s pet. Just wanted it so bad,” Clarke said.
